For Good Measure: Exploring the Metrics and Standards Behind Sustainability

This year’s theme “For Good Measure” promises to explore the lingering questions and tremendous need for measuring impact on both people and the planet. The subject has become increasingly urgent as we overshoot several ecological boundaries, all while failing to provide basic needs for civilians worldwide. There is pressure on companies and governments to make substantial positive change, but what does this mean? How do we define sustainability and measure our progress toward or away from that ideal?

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of what criteria they should consider when evaluating impact for environmental, social, and economic sustainability. Join us on April 16th to be a part of these important discussions!

The MIT Sustainability Summit is an annual student-led event. Now in its 13th year, the Summit features discussions with academia, industry leaders, policy makers, and expert practitioners. The day’s unique focus and depth of content has led to the Summit’s growing prominence and attendance.
